A someone who listens to a LOT of music-related podcasts, I can easily say this is among the best, Dylan-related or otherwise. The hosts clearly have a deep knowledge of Dylan and a wide knowledge of people to talk with about him and his work. Each episode they have a great sense of questions...Read full review »

I will not make it a secret: I was here for Kerry Shale. Best voice in this universe. I would love to give 10 stars to him, but Apple only allows 5 stars. Please do not stop with your amazing work, Mr. Shale. I have reworked my review because his co-host blocks away Kerry Shale fans on Twitter....Read full review »

What a treasure! Hosts Kerry and Lucas are just excellent. Generous interviewers who also share their passion and insights beautifully. While their knowledge is encyclopedic, their conversations are playful, never pretentious. The recent episode with Matt Rowland Hill was just a thrill, maybe my...Read full review »

Is It Rolling, Bob drops every two weeks and I am eager to listen on the day it arrives. The words and music of Bob Dylan are treated with such love, respect and admiration by the fantastic and erudite guests. Hearing them recite the lyrics they have chosen as favorites inevitably gives even a...Read full review »

This is the kind of show that podcasts where invented for. If you love Dylan, this is a show where that love will be greeted and nurtured and enriched. If you love intelligent humans exploring life, death and everything in between then, regardless of your views on Bob Dylan, you will be...Read full review »

If you love Dylan then this is for you. The best Dylan podcast out there.

This is an excellent podcast that has really sparked my interest in Dylan and is helping me dig deeper. It feels very inclusive and doesn’t create barriers for new fans while retaining minutiae and depth for more serious fans. Great set of guests who are thankfully not all celebs but are really...Read full review »

Although I originally started listening because I’m a massive fan, this podcast has developed and evolved over time to be about much more than Bob Dylan. Lucas and Kerry are great interviewers and the conversations about anything from life, creativity and obviously Bob, flow like natural...Read full review »

Found out about this show about a year ago and like most other reviews here am making my way through all of them. Easily my favourite music podcast. If the interviewee is someone you’ve not heard of or not interested in just listen - you won’t be disappointed.

A wonderful, amazing episode, far and away my favourite
RoyBoy in the sun via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/05/22
Naturals, comfortable, open to and with their guests; I love that they agree to disagree on all (many?) things Bob Dylan. I wish many more memorable interviews and discussions for this pair of crazy guys. Thank you to their staff, production crew and contributors.
kbayline via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/21/22
There are plenty of really great interviews on this pod with some interesting guests. Overall, though, the guests and hosts are overwhelmingly coming from a literary/theatrical background, which leads to a very narrow approach to their analysis over the course of the podcast. Bob Dylan isn’t...Read full review »

While there is too much slander of Street Legal (a beloved and weird masterpiece) for my taste, this podcast is a wonderful compliment to listening to and thinking about Dylan’s music. Thank you for the wonderful conversations.
brooklynfan12 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/21
Absolutely thrilled to have found this terrific podcast. Love it!
/Daisy222 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/22/21
Thank God for the guests on this show who bring something to the table - real insights. The hosts on the other hand view Dylan through their shallow political and religious views, almost trying to constantly prove how really, really woke they are. Insufferable. Perhaps you guys should host a...Read full review »

My new favourite podcast. This is interesting people talking about the most interesting of people. Thank you Lucas and Kerry, I don't know how I started listening to this, I think I just saw the Nish episode and then slowly made my way through all of them. The hosts bring such a level of...Read full review »

I came here for a single episode, suggested from another show ... but stayed because quite simply, it’s a brilliant show. Such a great selection of guests, from so many fields and always so entertaining. Luke & Kerry are fantastic hosts because they have the thing that too many hosts don’t,...Read full review »

The John Niven interview was fascinating and he has a vast knowledge of his subject. A very funny and intelligent man. I recommend everyone reads his books especially The Music from Big Pink and Kill Your Friends
DavidMo via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/04/21
Started with the John Niven episode (favourite author) now I’m making my way through them. Really interesting, funny and insightful. Cool guys too!
Awetioplgfsqqafv via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/27/21
Really enjoy this podcast, the two hosts are obviously big fans and really good at chatting to their guests about their shared love of bob. Favourite episodes so far were with Michael Graham, but there's something to learn in most of them.Read full review »

Edward nails Street Legal. His is the best encapsulation of why it’s probably the greatest Dylan album. For me it’s the other side of the coin to Astral Weeks but from the same place, one of complete surrender. For Morrison it was spiritual but for Dylan it was earthly - he’s down in the reeds...Read full review »

Can popular music be more than just the soundtrack to our lives? Is it rolling makes the case that just occasionally it can. To those who love Dylan it was always obvious. For those who don’t or for whom prejudice about ‘that voice’ they show why they should. Dylan is a singular genius
shingle street via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/28/20
Not so much a podcast about Bob Dylan as a podcast about being a fan of Bob Dylan. The concept works brilliantly, with a different guest each show opening up on topics like when they first came across Bob, their favourite Bob period and whether they’ve ever got off the ‘Bob train’. The hosts are...Read full review »

Listened to this over morning coffee and will without doubt be listening to Bob Dylan and/or Dan Bern for the rest of the day! Great stories and insight into both artists. Will give the Billy Bragg episode a go next.
Glenn Hodge Banned via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/12/20
A Dylan fan listening to other Dylan fans? What’s not to love. It’s super informative, and even if you’re already a huge Dylanphile, you’ll probably find something here to deepen your love and knowledge even more. Great guests and great hosts!
Ives Abouchar via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/26/20
Hearts on his record sleeves, with off the cuff expertise. Insightful and delightful, funny and always on the money: who better to analyse the man of a thousand masks than two actors from either side of the Atlantic? A must listen for all Bobcats 'n' kittens.Read full review »

Must listen for all BobCats. Always admired the casual approach and unique guests.
Patty Mouth via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/22/20
Every one (9 so far) I've listened to has been so interesting, some I think, I'm not going to like this as much, I end up not wanting it to end. Totally Absorbing.Read full review »

Fascinating podcast for Dylan heads. All periods are discussed through a variety of knowledgeable and interesting guests (and hosts!).
Unclebuck0070 via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 04/17/20
Highly recommended for any hardcore or even casual Dylan fan. The selection of guests each week are fresh, interesting and completely different each time. Each with their own close or distant, but always interesting relationship with Bob’s music. Listen, listen, listen!

This is without doubt my favourite podcast. Cheers, T. (@pastpostcard)

Goddamn!!! Moving to 1 every 4 weeks!
chrisdonkey via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/03/19
Quite simply the best Dylan podcast. The format allows for wide-ranging discussions, and I never cease to learn something new. Bob’s life and work is endlessly interesting, and this podcast always generates fascinating discussion. Thanks Kerry and Lucas!
Loz Clarke via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/03/19
For any interview based podcast the main components to make it great are good well informed presenters and interesting interviewees and ‘Is it Rolling Bob-Talking Dylan’ has this by the truckload. Many laugh out loud moments, interesting debate around albums and songs and just brilliant stories...Read full review »

Witty and informed conversations, great guests bringing different perspectives. Plus selflessly curated Spotify playlists to flesh out the podcasts.

Engaging, deeply knowledgeable hosts combined with a fantastic roster of guests make this podcast stand out.
DeeThomaz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/05/19
I only started listening yesterday and I’ve already gone through the first six episodes. At this rate I’m going to get through them all before my commute on Monday! Great insights into Bob Dylan but most of all just a great platform for those whose life has been altered by his work. Well done...Read full review »

These are really informed podcasts. Great guests, and the right balance between being informative, giving behind the scenes insights and gentle humour.
Jackster63 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/03/19
A rich seam of Bob related trivia that bring together his disparate and many phases through the eyes and ears of those who have come to him at different junctures through the years. Every episode reminds you of Bob album that you’d forgotten about or even dismissed and leads to you...Read full review »

Really enjoyable conversations between Lucas, Kerry and an interesting roll call of guests about all things Dylan (the good and the bad!). It’s made me listen to some of his music in a new light. Definitely recommended.
Swodaem via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/01/19
An altogether marvellous Dylan podcast. Among the best podcasts I subscribe to. In the wrong hands (eg gushing American presenters) this could be very tiresome but Lucas and Kerry have perfect broadcasting voices. Restrained yet engaged and willing to let the guest expand and meander the various...Read full review »

These chaps do an excellent job. The world of Dylan is labyrinthine and enduring. I always find new ways to explore his works and these podcasts open up new avenues to do so. The authors aren’t slavish however and there is refreshing honesty in their views. Keep it going guys! I’m loving it.
stuart1red via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/29/19
Enjoyable podcast - format allows freedom to go off piste and talk about other artists and it’s great to hear what Bobs music means to people on a personal level. However some guests are inevitably better than others so for that reason 4 stars not 5
[email protected] via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/01/19
What you get is either a fruitful discussion (eg Barb Jungr, Paul Morley) or tedious ignorance (K Williams).
HypnotistCollector via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/01/19
Thoughtful and thought provoking, offering lots of fascinating insight and opinion. A perfect encapsulation and expression of what it’s like to be more than a fan, consumed by the work of an artist. Each episode could easily be half as long again, always over too soon. Keep ‘em coming.
bbseeger via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/20/18
.... personal views of bd in relaxed, informative, funny atmosphere.

Any chance of longer episodes? I groaned when you said "time to wrap up" in the Kenneth Cranham interview. Informed, passionate conversation. Pretty much the perfect podcast.Read full review »
